- Box Office Bomb: Budget, $7 million (estimated). Box office, $46,509. The film is noted for its especially Troubled Production, suffering from having its American release pulled courtesy of distributor Paramount because of accusations of being racist. The treatment of his film prompted Samuel Fuller to retreat to France (where his films were much better received) and never make another Hollywood film again. However, it was generally acclaimed by critics, and after it was finally released on DVD in 2008, the general public has repeatedly criticized Paramount for withholding its release, given that it teaches an important lesson on America's damning record of racism.
- Creator Cameo: Karl Lewis Miller, the film's dog trainer, plays Julie's attempted rapist.
